I bought this as our power has been down 2 times this winter for more than 3 days each time. It has more than enough power to run my "essential" household circuits. I did put in a transfer switch which has made it much easier to run the house. The important aspects of this generator are:
1. Watts-I want to run 2 refridgerators, furnace fan, microwave, septic and various lights.
2. Start up power (some generators have as much watts but not as much start up power) This is important because when your furnace, fridge or other appliances start they require more watts to get going.
3. Fuel tank size-I wanted it to run as long as possible without having to refill the tank.
4. Quite-come on it is load no matter what you buy however an Overhead Valve engine is less loud.
First impression is that this generator is worth the money. You might get more machine with a Honda (very nice machines) but they are MUCH higher priced. I only need this one in power outages and perhaps some incidental portable power somewhere. I would purchase again. Free shipping and no tax. Only way to go.
Also, I'm having a professional electrician install a transfer switch (purchased separately from Lowes or even Amazon) for $200 bucks so I can run the sump pumps, a refrig, furnace and hot water heater, etc.
My son has a business that requires him to rent a generator occasionally at $80/day. He's going to take the generator and it will pay for itself quickly. He thinks it's great and he didn't like B & S, being a fan of another manufacturer. Hope this is helpful.
P.s. The price is fantastic from amazon. Looking at the home/trade store flyers I can see that I saved a good chunck of money.
